Software development with ConceptDraw products

Generally any project system includes the set of tools, techniques, methodologies, resources and procedures used to manage a project. It aids a project manager in effectively guiding a project to completion.

The project tool kit content is vary depending upon the application area, complexity of the project But there are the basic moments which are present at each project. So should be and a basic tools, helping to carry them out. This issue introduces the sampled scenario that describes the advantages which provide the application of ConceptDraw products as a tool kit for project management by the example of billing software development project.

  1. Project initiating

    Brainstorming and mind mapping techniques are used at all stages of the project to encourage creative thinking and solve problems. Software such as ConceptDraw MINDMAP has a number of advantages over the traditional methods for recording ideas such as flipcharts or whiteboards. The powerful functionality of ConceptDraw MINDMAP allows user to sort, structure and analyze information.

    Furthermore ConceptDraw MINDMAP is the ideal way to gather and store ideas and information related to project: list of project resources, tasks, list of information you need

    A map created using ConceptDraw MINDMAP can become a visual "explanatory note" for project. These qualities transform ConceptDraw MINDMAP into a powerful tool for project management.

  2. Project development

    ConceptDraw PROJECT allows you to present any ideas proceeded during brainstorming session in the form of a working project. With ConceptDraw PROJECT you can accurately determine initial project scope, available resources, plan tasks and make resource allocations. You see a clear plan of the tasks that need to be accomplished, and understand the relationship between tasks in respect to time and resources used.

    Estimating work and managing schedules is a project management core competency. To make a good project plan you should state your intentions as fully as possible as you work major tradeoffs into a plan. Then in later stages of the project’s execution, when different factors make their influence on the project running process, and you need to revise some activities, the plan will help you keep enough discipline to not raise project risk by cutting out activities that you should do during initial planning moments.

    With the help ConceptDraw PROJECT you can get cost-effectiveness and timeliness data, being able to review, revise and adjust your plans to get successful results.

  3. Project flow visualization

    Usually Unified Modeling Language is applied by IT professionals to model computer applications.

    ConceptDraw DIAGRAM show itself as a comprehensive software tool that can help to integrate UML diagrams into software development process. Each UML diagram is designed to let developers and customers view a software system from a different perspective and in varying degrees of abstraction.

    ConceptDraw DIAGRAM as a UML Modeling software helps quickly and easily generate all varieties of standard UML diagrams using hundreds of professional ready-made objects and symbols: use case diagram, class diagram, sequence diagram, state chart diagram, activity diagram, component diagram, and deployment diagram. By the way, ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is not exclusively focused on UML – it is a little part of its overall functionality.

    It occurs rather helpful while designing a whole set of project documentation. Build organizational charts and data flow diagrams, add graphic issues to reports. Project documentation should be more comprehensible for stakeholders. Present ready-to-use documents in one of the suitable formats. You can easily achieve this by using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM huge functionality.

Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM  →

Big and complex projects sometimes need some simplification of plans and schedules. That's why Program Evaluation and Review Technique was invented and first implemented in 1958. You can create PERT diagrams effortlessly with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and share them with your colleagues. Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) is a method that is used to assess and analyze projects. PERT is a valuable tool for the project management practice. PERT gives an assessment and analysis of the time needed to the project completion. A PERT chart is a visual tool that delivers a graphical view of a project timeline. It is used to display the sequences and dependences of project tasks necessary to complete a project. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM delivers the possibility to build a PERT along with other diagrams applied to assist management process by using its Seven Management and Planning Tools solution.Program Evaluation and Review Technique <br>(PERT) with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM  *

Metropolitan area networks (MAN). Computer and Network Examples →

A list of parameters on which networks differ is very long. A large network with a range up to 50 kilometers is called metropolitan area network (MAN), and this type of network can include several local area networks. Metropolitan networks in their turn connect into global area networks. Here you will see a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). This is an extensive network which occupies a large territory including a few buildings or even the whole city. The space of the MAN is bigger than LAN, but lower than WAN. MAN comprise a lot of communication equipment and delivers the Internet connection to the LANs in the city area. Computer and Networks solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a set of libraries with ready-to-use vector objects to design various kinds of computer networks.Metropolitan area networks (MAN).
